Everyone should have a recorded conversation with their friends. Almost like a photograph, it’s a piece of history that can remind you of good times. There’s an argument that it is better than a photograph. You can listen to it years later and get a better sense of your friends.
Which is precisely why I’m glad we recorded a conversation with my friends from Rescue A Hero. Initially, I was worried. Most of our conversations veered towards nonsense, but I didn’t give them enough credit, the recording turned into a fun get together with moments of honesty and reflection.
Rescue A Hero is a band that started in 2007 composed of Mark “Mcoy” Cortes, Jeremie Lim, Jason Almendras and Carlo Villarica. We gigged as often as we could till 2012. Eventually, real life took over and Mcoy left for New Zealand. Shortly after, Jeremie eventually moved to Singapore then to America, and Jason moved to Manila.
Rescue A Hero became part of our past, but it was a cherished past. Even though someone once called us the “Titos of rock”, we were merely a blip in the music landscape of Cebu. We never earned much from playing music (we got plenty of free pizza and beer though), we never “made it”, we never got critical acclaim, but our original intent was never to be anything. We just wanted to make music and hang with friends. By that measure, we were the most successful band out there.
I hope you enjoy this conversation of four really good friends who hadn’t seen each other in years.
